Wonderful food, excellent wait staff. Do bring your wallet, is pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for! The salad boat is a hoot, and lots of different breads to choose from at it. I frequent this spot.

We only stopped for some drinks and appetizers but it was a really neat place. You get the feeling you're in a ship. The buffet looked really good too. The waitress was friendly and it was just a nice place to hang out for awhile.
